Nehemiah 1:3

Context

1:3 They said to me, “The remnant that remains from the exile there in the province are experiencing considerable 1  adversity and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem lies breached, and its gates have been burned down!” 2 

Nehemiah 2:17

Context
2:17 Then I said to them, “You see the problem that we have: Jerusalem is desolate and its gates are burned. Come on! Let’s rebuild the wall of Jerusalem so that this reproach will not continue.”

1 tn Heb “great.”

2 tn Heb “have been burned with fire” (so also in Neh 2:17). The expression “burned with fire” is redundant in contemporary English; the translation uses “burned down” for stylistic reasons.
